Haptics is the science of applying touch (tactile) sensation and control to interact with computer applications. The word is derived from the Greek word “haptein” meaning “to fasten.”Organizations worldwide are using techniques and technologies to better manage their knowledge. Their objectives to improve the quality of knowledge sharing by exploiting tacit and explicit knowledge of successes and failures. Haptic technology is like exploring the virtual world with a stick. The computer communicates sensations through a haptic interface –a stick, scalpel, racket or pen that is connected to a force-exerting motor. In this paper we explicate knowledge management, dynamic use of haptic technology as learning tool, how haptic technology works and its significance. Then, we move on to its advantages and disadvantage a few applications of Haptic Technology. Finally we conclude by mentioning a few future developments.
